Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun and other governors had to intervene to avert crisis at the burial of the first executive governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, on Monday.
Adeleke’s death on Sunday had shocked his supporters, some of who protested on Sunday.
The already tense atmosphere took a turn for the worse when the Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Idiat Babalola, moved to the canopy where the governors who attended the burial sat on Monday.
Youths at the burial became agitated and asked her to leave before attacking her with chairs and sticks.
Amosun intervened, shielded her from the attacks and led her out of Adeleke’s country home to safety.
